Arizona's SB 1070 is racist to the core | New, Next, Now! | IrishCentral

Arizona's SB 1070 is racist to the core New, Next, Now! IrishCentral

And have you actually seen the comments written by so many of the state's own citizens in their online forums? To hear most of them tell it the undocumented have come to America to 'take our jobs, kill our citizens and rape our women.'

Dehumanizing much?

At a Republican County forum recently, in tune with the tenor of the times, primary candidate for Congress Pat Bertroche suggested that we microchip 'illegals.'

Bertroche said, referring to undocumented immigrants who are detained and deported, 'I actually support microchipping them. I can microchip my dog so I can find it. Why can't I microchip an illegal?'

And worst of all it’s no secret that the anti-immigrant movement in the United States has long and deep connections to white nationalist individuals and organizations.

White supremacist political parties have made (and have advertised) a donation they made to the fund Brewer set in to prepare for the defense of SB 1070.

Stormfront.org, the biggest white nationalist web forum online, has also called for donations to the SB 1070 defense fund. 'Money where you mouth is time,' they state.

Jan, you might want to take a look at your most ardent supporters. Why? Because money talks, and here's what it's saying - SB 1070 is racist to the core.

  1. If it talks like a Nazi, acts like a Nazi, and in fact calls itself “Nazi”, are we then safe to assume that it IS “Nazi”?

    When you hear about the horrible acts that are being committed in the name of “immigration enforcement”, it is hard to not compare what Arizona is doing to Nazi and/or white supremacist ideology. When you hear about how actual neo-Nazis are literally out hunting down immigrants, it’s hard not to call it “Nazi”. When you hear about how white supremacist nationalists are behind the legal defense fund in support of SB 1070, it’s hard not to call it “Nazi.” When you see cases where racial profiling has led to such barbaric acts such as the time when a pregnant woman was forced to give birth cuffed by the wrists and ankles, it’s hard not to use the word “Nazi” … and again, when you find out that SB 1070 was written by and introduced to the Arizona legislature by people that are proud to identify themselves as “Nazis”, it’s hard not to use the word “Nazi”.
